An enigmatic French school portrait study of a black and white dog looking upwards towards the yonder. We love the unfinished nature of this piece, which works well against the misty background of blue and green.
The painting is unsigned but it’s clearly been treasured over the years given its present restored condition.
Medium: Oil on canvas Overall size: 17” x 22” / 43cm x 56cm Year of creation: c. 1900 Provenance: France Condition: Very presentable. Craquelure in areas but the paint layer is stable. Three tidy repairs with corresponding patches on the reverse.
